Came back to earlier spot. Lunch.

Ordered the chicken tacos and some IPA I’ve never heard of. The airport is much more crowded than earlier.

Checking in to gate C2d at 12:40 as per the agent there, she telling me to show an hour before and request standby. Okay…. See how that goes. If I don’t get on then I’m going to that tasting room I saw down a few gates.

This airport has the feel of a small city or larger village. Connected to everything I see but feeling more tired. Hoping this tall, tall beer wakes me. Puts me smile n more Hemingway or HST mode.
